Considering I had 4 days off last week, I sure managed to keep busy! But I guess that’s just how I roll. After we got back from NY last Sunday we got groceries and I came up with a loose meal plan- knowing I would need to be flexible this week. I did just some minor prep that took less than an hour, so not much to share as far as that goes this week!
This was how the meal plan ended up last week, after moving around a couple of meals:
Sunday: salmon, broccoli/cauliflower/carrot mix, baked sweet potatoes
Monday: almond flour chicken, baked potatoes, asparagus
Tuesday: burgers, sweet potato fries, green beans
Wednesday: flat iron steak, roasted red potatoes, green beans
Thursday: went to my parents’
Friday: pasta, meatballs, asparagus
Saturday: leftover prime rib from my parents, mashed potatoes, kale/cucumber salad
Breakfasts: eggs with bacon and veggies/plantains/sweet potatoes
Lunches: salads with chicken or steak, leftovers
The week was pretty good for workouts, although my mileage was a little lower than last. After my 15 miles on New Year’s I decided to take the following day off from running, and since I was at my parents’ house I was able to use their elliptical. Having to drive to the gym just to get on an elliptical never sounds worth it to me. So this worked out pretty well. I have also been trying to add more barre and yoga throughout the week to work on strength and flexibility.
Monday: 7.1 miles @ 8:32 pace
Tuesday: 4.5 miles @8:49 pace, 60 minutes yoga
Wednesday: 3 miles (treadmill), Body Pump, CX works
Thursday: 15 miles @ 8:42 pace, 10 minutes yoga cool down
Friday: 35 minutes elliptical, 40 minutes barre3, 10 minutes yoga
Saturday: 6.41 miles @ 8:33 pace, 10 minutes barre3, 20 minutes yoga
Total: 36 miles
